MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Gov. Tim Pawlenty has signed a deal to

publish a memoir in 2011.

The Republican governor of Minnesota has said he won't decide

whether to run for president in 2012 until after this fall's

midterm election. But his book deal announced Friday is another

sign he's gearing up for a run, as publishing a book has become a

standard step for presidential wannabes.

Potential Republican candidates Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin and

Mike Huckabee have all published books.

Tyndale House Publishers of Carol Stream, Ill., will publish the

volume. The company says in a press release it will include

Pawlenty's reflections on his life, career and vision for America.

The company did not release terms of its deal with Pawlenty.
